Like you, I wondered about who this singer is that will be performing at the museum on Thursday July 16th.
I had to really search hard to find out something about this artist but after listening to his recent music I know this will be a beautiful concert.
The artists real name is Richard (Phil) Atkins, but his stage name is Richard Twice which refers to the title of a 1970 album recorded by two Richards (Atkins & Manning). Critics raved about the album stating, “This is a virtually perfect pop album, the kind of thing that would have ruled the charts if the wind had been blowing the right way that month.” But just as their stardom crested and a huge career in the music business was emanate, the 2 Richards mysteriously walked away from it all. Richard Atkins has returned to the stage after more than 30 years playing and singing better than ever.
As I listen to his music he seems to be a combination of a John Denver and Neil Young with all that talent wrapped into his original songs. I found many of his songs on his MySpace. I am so enjoying the listen, especially a song called “Common Man”. His melancholy folk is a sound I’m sure you will enjoy!
This is a rare and special opportunity to hear him tell his story and perform his songs.
